Andre Roberts, Jamari Lattimore visit Buffalo Bills in free agency

New, comments

The Bills have an open roster spot again, and are bringing in two established veterans that could fill it

The Buffalo Bills played host to two free agent players on Thursday: wide receiver Andre Roberts and linebacker Jamari Lattimore.

Roberts, who was released by Washington earlier this week, has several free agent visits signed up, the first of which came with the Bills. The 28-year-old slot receiver is entering his seventh NFL season as a former third-round pick out of Citadel; in his six pro seasons (four in Arizona, two in Washington), he has 229 receptions for 2,711 yards and 13 touchdowns. The 5'11", 187-pound Roberts has also returned 53 kicks and 68 punts in his career, and while he has not been unusually productive in those categories, the Bills are looking for help in that department.

Lattimore is a fifth-year veteran, a 2011 undrafted free agent out of Middle Tennessee State that spent his first four seasons as a reserve and special teams player in Green Bay. He served in that same role on a one-year deal with the New York Jets last season, and the Bills are likely looking at him in that regard, as well. The 6'2", 229-pound Lattimore has experience playing in complex defenses, and has 97 tackles, two sacks, and an interception to his name so far in his career.

The Bills have one open spot on their 90-man roster after placing return man Dri Archer on the Reserve/Did Not Report list earlier this week.
